Benson Elliot Managing Partner Marc Mogull has been appointed Chairman of the Bank of England Commercial Property Forum, succeeding Ian Marcus. Mr. Mogull will be the Forum’s fourth chairman since its establishment in 1993.
The Commercial Property Forum was created to bring all sides of the property industry together in the aftermath of the commercial property crash of the early 1990s. It provides a valuable source of market intelligence to the Bank of England by convening senior industry figures to discuss market conditions and developments.
Commenting on his appointment, Marc Mogull, Managing Partner of Benson Elliot said: “I’m honoured to have been asked to take up this appointment, on behalf of an industry I’ve devoted my career to, and a collection of industry leaders I think so highly of. We have a collective responsibility to ensure that risks are well-understood, policymaking well-informed, and the effects of regulation carefully thought through. My goal is to sustain the dialogue between the industry and the Bank of England that was established over twenty years ago, building on the great work of my predecessor, Ian Marcus.”
